Abstract: The present research was carried out using 25 genotypes were planted in randomized block design with three replications during Rabi- 2016-2017 at Research Farm, Department of Plant Breeding and Genetics, Rajasthan College of Agriculture, Maharana Pratap University of Agriculture & Technology, Udaipur. Association study indicated that seed yield per plant was positively and significantly correlated at genotypic level with husk yield per plant, latex yield per plant, number of effective capsule per plant, diameter of main capsule, days to 50 per cent flowering and plant height, whereas husk yield per plant and latex yield per plant showed positive significant correlation with seed yield per plant only at phenotypic level and latex yield per plant was also positively and significantly correlated at genotypic level with diameter of main capsule, days to 50 per cent flowering, husk yield per plant, seed yield per plant and number of effective capsule per plant. These associations indicated that improvement in seed yield and latex can be achieved by improving the above characters. Path coefficient analysis revealed that husk yield per plant, latex yield per plant, number of effective capsule per plant, diameter of main capsule, days to 50 per cent flowering, plant height and diameter of main capsule, days to 50 per cent flowering, husk yield per plant, seed yield per plant, number of effective capsule per plant were the major components for seed yield per plant and latex yield per plant respectively because these traits had maximum direct and indirect effect towards seed yield and latex yield.
